Who is required to be licensed as a Mortgage Broker under NRS 645B?
Any person who wishes to engage in any activity meeting the statutory definition of “mortgage broker” with respect to residential or commercial property is required to first obtain a license as a mortgage broker under NRS 645B, unless the person is exempt from licensure under NRS 645B.015 and holds a certificate of exemption under NRS 645B.016. For additional information concerning exemptions and obtaining a certificate of exemption, see Exemptions.
How to Obtain or Renew a License
Residential Mortgage Brokers
All initial license and renewal applications and applicable fees for residential mortgage brokers are submitted to the Division through the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System and Registry (“NMLS
”) using the Company Form (MU-1 Form
) for the principal office and the Branch Form (MU-3 Form
) for each branch location. Nevada law requires each licensed mortgage broker to have at least one licensed office located in this state.

Commercial Mortgage Brokers
A mortgage broker that only conducts commercial mortgage activity (loans secured by real property other than a dwelling) may submit its application for licensure or renewal and applicable fees directly to the Division. The application and further instruction may be obtained by contacting the Division.
Mortgage Agents (Loan Originators)
All initial license and renewal applications and applicable fees for mortgage agents (loan originators) are submitted to the Division through the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System and Registry (“NMLS”) using the Individual Form.
